02/02/11 DMC News Update

Many changes have happened recently at Deerness Motor Coaches with service revisions taking effect on the 15th of January which will include the start of the Durham Tour, minor alterations to service S2, withdrawal of service 41 and reduced frequency on service 45/45a. These changes will allow us to use vehicles in positions where the majority of people are using them. Many vehicle changes have also happened with the sole double Decker, Optare Olympus 0001-10 NK60 FHC has left DMC due to no service requiring a double-decker any more which has moved to South Shields&Sunderland. Also leaving, this time for Deerness Motor Services are Scania OmniLinks 0015-10 NK60 UPC and 0016-10 NK60 UPD due to the unsuitability of the vehicles and Optare Delta 003-97 P130 RWR. Moving into the Deerness Motor Coaches Fleet in exchange are Dennis SPDs V380 SVV, W107 RNC and X602 OKH. Alexander PS / Volvo B10M 0009-94 M463 VCW has been painted into a new livery for reserve work on the Durham Tour. Moving on to the 23rd of January, with service 45/45a cut to every hour combined DAF SB220 / Plaxton Prestge 0004-99 S350 KHN, Alexander Dennis ALX300 0005-98 R102 KRG and Optare Solo SR 0011-10 NK10 GHC have all been sold. Open Top Olympians E301 MSG and E302 MSG have been numbered 0001-87 and 0002-87 respectively with both now being available for service while Alexander PS / Volvo B10M M463 VCW has been re-numbered 0003-94 to match the other tour vehicles. DAF / Plaxton Prima YPU 781 is now available for service after repaint and is numbered 0015-98. Following on from this, the most recent repaint was on the 30th January which saw Plaxton Beaver / Mercedes-Benz Vario 0008-99 S737 RNE which is now in new livery.
